Yoga Retreat in Slovenia: Embody the Elements

Kirsten van den Akker and I are so happy to announce our 5th Women’s Yin Yoga Retreat: Embody the Elements! Take time to slow down, nourish your soul and completely reconnect with your true nature.  

18-24 August, 2020 in the breathtakingly beautiful mountains of Slovenia! 

Imagine: 23 hectares of energetically powerful land, enchanting woodlands, wild meadows and organic farmland – all to ourselves to explore and enjoy! We will root down and experience the stability of the earth, breathe in the mountain air, flow with the energy of water, feel the inner alchemy of fire, and be held, as we are, in the element of space.

Dive deeper into your yin yoga practice and discover your own felt sense of each of the five elements. Learn how the specific healing properties of each element can support and empower you.
